The way I get python is to use the url in the book.
For python2, I back up to the parent: http://www.python.org/ftp/python
and get the max number that starts with a 2 (or 3 or python3). That
should still be valid. My script uses 'curl -3 -L -s -m30 $url' to get
the page, but for some reason, pages on some sites are not always
As you can see in this instance, the python page was fetched properly
for python3, but not python2. The next time the script is run, it will
probably be OK.
Note that on the same page, mercurial had the same problem. That site
has a more frequent problem.
